Friends Again? Estranged RHONJ Stars Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo Reunite for Sabra Hummus Ad
Prior to filming this, the two had not spoken in six years.
After estranged friends and Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo were spotted traveling together to Los Angeles for an undisclosed project in December, PEOPLE can now exclusively reveal that the two were filming an upcoming Super Bowl ad for Sabra hummus.
In a teaser for the commercial released on Thursday (above), Giudice and Manzo are sitting at an all-red table, each wearing all red themselves, dipping slices of bread into Sabra’s new olive tapenade hummus flavor.
Though they’re seated next to each other, it’s hard to confirm from the short clip whether a true reconciliation took place, as you only hear them say each other’s names before Manzo tosses her slice of bread in the air. I guess we have to tune in to the Super Bowl to see what else is revealed! And also, you know, to watch the football game.
While it may seem like a surprising partnership, it does make sense that the two would reunite over food—Giudice has previously written a cookbook and Manzo recently launched her YouTube cooking show.
Two more teasers for the spot (below) show rapper T-Pain and drag queens Miz Cracker and Kim Chi also making an appearance.
“Hummus is for everyone and pairs well with nearly every food you eat,” said Jason Levine, chief marketing officer for Sabra. “Whatever your passion, however you live, love, eat and enjoy life, this plant-based food is a winner. We’re bringing a diverse group of personalities to the table and demonstrating just how incredibly versatile, relevant and relatable hummus is.”
Giudice had previously accused Manzo and their RHONJ costar Jacqueline Laurita, who is Manzo’s sister-in-law, of being behind the government’s investigation into her family’s finances. Both have denied those claims.
Prior to this reunion, Manzo told fans at BravoCon in November that she had not seen Giudice for six years. And despite their tension, she said she wouldn’t flinch if they crossed paths. “I would say hello to her if I saw her. If I saw her tomorrow, and it’s face to face, you just say hello to each other,” Manzo said. “It’s just human decency.”
